No its play well, or maybe I dont notice 368x480 from 352x480, its less than 5% x/y ratio.

No! It works fine. I try on 3 Players:
Kiss (play also Divx) and 2 simples DVD player, Daytek (34 euro, less than $28!) and an old Philips.

I have try with "A_is_for_atom_1953.mpeg" 368x480
Maybe is a specific video, tell me which one and I'll try.

The problem for me is getting the 368x480 file to burn correctly to DVD-R. How do you do it without converting the file first? I'd be overjoyed if you could tell me. :) The programs I use to demux and remux (IFOEdit and TMPGEnc) tell me that 368x480 is not valid.

The "DVD burner", hardware and software, dont care
about file format and content; from his point of view it's just a stream of bits. Maybe you use one
the @!!## "all in one" software to burn DVD

For Windows try DeepBurner:

Well, sure, I can burn the mpg files to DVD-R, but my DVD player won't play raw mpg files, and neither will most DVD players. The files must be in .vob format with the proper ifo files, like a regular DVD, or the disc won't play. And, the programs I use to change the raw mpg files into .vob files will not accept the resolution of 368x480. That's what I mean.

No, all DVD players (*) accept mpeg extension and accept exotic resolution! I swear!

(*) All my players and all the player of my friends, with preliger files.

No, not all DVD players play raw mpeg files. My main DVD player will not play them, and it's a relatively new one, which came out at the beginning of this year. But, luckily, I just discovered that I have another player that will play them! However, the files encoded at 368x480 still play squished. So, I'll still have to convert them. :(

All you need to do to author these "non-standard" resolutions with a program like TMPG DVD Author is patch the headers of the files with a program like DVD Patcher (search Google). It takes about 0.1 seconds to patch the header of any MPEG file to the DVD standard (720x480). No re-encoding of the files is necessary.

Patch the header of the MPEG to DVD standard.
Import it into TMPG DVD author.
Burn DVD and playback on TV.

The DVD player only cares that the files have a 4:3 aspect ratio, the resolution is irrelevent. I have old DVD players (1998) that play all these files without problems, as long as the aspect ratio is 4:3 which it is 99% of the time.

Using DVDPatcher to patch the header didn't work. It's still squeezed, and all the way to the left of the screen so the right half is blank, except now the blank area has a bunch of staticky-looking visual noise. Am I doing something wrong?
